Q: How are Hirsch's organ meat supplements produced?
A: Hirsch Organic Organ Meat Supplements are produced to a BRC certified standard in the UK and certified organic by the Soil Association. BRC is a leading safety and quality certification program, used by over 21000 certificated suppliers in 90 countries. The standards guarantee the standardisation of quality, safety and operational criteria and ensure that manufacturers fulfil their legal obligations and provide protection for the end consumer.
Q: Where does the beef come from and how are they kept?
A: The ingredients in Hirsch organ meat supplements are sourced exclusively from British Soil Association organic farms and manufactured in organic certified facilities. In the UK all beef cows are raised on pasture and grass fed, except in bad weather conditions when they need to be housed inside for their welfare and even then are normally fed on silage and beets.
Q: Are Hirsch organ meat supplements tested for heavy metals?
A: Every Hirsch production run is tested for the following heavy metals: Arsenic, Cadmium, Lead and Mercury. Contact us if you would like to see these results for a specific product/batch please contact us.
Q: What other testing do you do for your organ meat supplements?
A: We complete microbiology testing on each production run, e.g. for mould and pathogens and conduct a yearly test on the vitamin and mineral content of the product. Contact us and we can share these results with you.
Q: Are your organs sourced from hormone and antibiotics free cows?
A: Our beef organ mix is sourced from British organic farms that are Soil Association certified. Growth hormones are banned completely in the UK.
The US, Australia, New Zealand and Canada, allow farmers to give antibiotics to livestock to make them grow faster. This is banned in the UK. The Soil Association also specifically restricts the use of certain antibiotics. As a result the use antibiotics on Soil Association certified beef farms is 3.5x lower than other UK farms on average. Organic standards aim to promote good health and welfare so that disease is exceptional rather than routine.
